Arriving by train – take Belgrave line and hop off at the last stop. Walk 10 mins or we’ll happily come and pick you up.

If you are coming to Belgrave by train, you get on the Belgrave line from Southern Cross station in Melbourne and go to the end of the line.If you are driving, we are east of Melbourne. So find Burwood Highway and drive east all the way out to Belgrave and turn left at Wattle Avenue. From the Monash Freeway get off at Ferntree Gully Road, turn left until you hit Burwood Highway. Turn right and follow it to Belgrave and turn left onto Wattle Avenue. GPS systems seem to work in this area. So if you have one, you are ahead of the game! Melways Map 75 E9

"Great place to go for a weekend. Hosts were very welcoming." Quiet. Relaxing. Just what we needed. Close to shops & restaurants/cafe's and hiking trails (a short car ride). Cottage was well heated and had everything we needed to cook a meal. We had a great time away.

"Great cottage" Had a lovely week in a comfortable and well equipped cottage. Particularly enjoyed the outside space and the parrots coming to be fed each day. Margaret was a great host providing for all our needs without being intrusive. We have family in Belgrave so will definitely book again when we next visit the area.

We enjoyed staying at Stone's Throw Cottage B&B in Belgrave Vic. The owners were very friendly and the cottage had everything we needed especially good heating as it was quite cold there. It is close to the Puffing Billy and other attractions in the Dandenong area as well as Belgrave.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Cottage is very clean and well equiped with everything we needed. Cheese and biscuits and cookies on arrival and substantial breakfast provisions were provided. Private and relaxing cottage with beautiful visiting birds and very cute little dog as well!

Margaret and Rob were welcoming warm hosts and have kept the cottage and garden in lovely clean, neat and comfortable condition. A great place to stay for a couple of nights whilst exploring all the dandenong ranges has to offer... a nature walk through the magical forest, then back to the cottage to kick up the heels with a hot cuppa, a movie, and cosy bed...only to wake up to the morning chorus of birds and breeze through the trees! and a wonderful fulfilling breakfast on the balcony!
